Description

A group of Nuer men on the banks of a lagoon watching anxiously the progress of a hippo hunt. Thesiger wrote that the Nuer prized hippopotamus meat for its fat content, and he occasionally shot a hippo to provide his porters with a treat.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
